Avondale Nursery

Press Page

Several magazines, and even the telly, have featured the nursery in articles about our plant collections, so we thought you’d like to have a look at some of them. We’re still recovering from all the attention!

Roy Lancaster spent a day with us at the nursery last August. It was a privilege to share the garden with him and to chat with a fellow plantaholic! Hopefully an article will appear in the magazine later in the year!

We hope to see you soon!
